Some confusion about coupled solver for incompressible flow
I am working on the coding of a coupled solver for steady-state incompressible flow (pressure-based). I want to strengthen myself the background theory before doing programming. It is hard to find a complete and systematic tutorial (CFD books for engineers) on this, except some math papers.
Here are some questions:
1. What's the difference between a strongly coupled and a weak(or regular) coupled? Does the "strongly coupled" also mean strongly implicit? Any example paper?
2. Is the use of artificial-compressibility taken as a coupled way? I think it's welcomed in some papers but not in commercial codes. Is it right?
3. What is a smoother, pre-smoother and post-smoother? is it the same concept with preconditioner?
4. Is multigrid a method or a preconditioner or can be both?
5. I am thinking of a design of the numerics for a wind turbine problem to achieve the best convergence speed:
diagonal Vanka smoother + ILU preconditioner + geometrical multigrid (accelerator)+ BiCGStab (solver)
Is this practical?
6. When I should use a flux-splitting scheme? Is it necessary or just upwind schemes will be sufficient?
7. What kind of velocity-pressure coupling should I use for FVM collated grid? Rhie-Chow interpolation, pseudo-velocity or other method?
8. Should I keep the time-term (hyperbolic) or just solve the steady-state equation (elliptic)?
Can anyone help? Thank you.
